7-19-90
first set

The boys were ripping up Picasso Moon during a jam, and there was a huge static break that practically blew the outdoor monitors. The band heard it, reacted, and skipped a beat. Interestingly, the static doesn't appear on the sondboard, but you can pick out the place it happened if you listen carefully. listen to an audience tape if you can because it's cool how the band recovers and continues. It was VERY loud.

I saw Steve Miller Band opening for them Summer '92 at Buckeye Lake. It was Steve and Co.'s last night on the tour, and he told the audience that because of that, he and his band were going to just have some fun and settle into a blues groove for a while. After about a half hour or so, he decided to start cranking out the hits with Fly Like An Eagle, sounding just great, until he stepped up to start singing "Time keeps on slippin'" and every speaker in the entire ampitheater went silent. Ouch! Steve kept strumming for a moment before he took both hands off the guitar and shrugged. Sound was soon restored, but I never saw that happen to anyone else.

By the way, he and Norton Buffalo joined the boys for the second set to roar through Midnight Hour, West L.A. Fadeaway, Truckin', and Spoonful. Fun night!
